1.  Introduction

   This document expands on Hierarchical HIT Registries
   [hhit-registries], defining defining 7 Identity Claims that are
   created and distributed through the provisioning process of a
   Unmanned Aircraft in Trustworthy Multipupose Remote ID (TMRID).

   These claims establish trust for Hierarchical HITs
   [hierarchical-hit].  They are then used in various Drone Remote ID
   Protocols to establish the trustworthy claims needed to safely use
   the data provided.

2.  Terms and Definitions

2.1.  Requirements Terminology

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "NOT RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
   "OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in BCP
   14 [RFC2119] [RFC8174] when, and only when, they appear in all
   capitals, as shown here.

2.2.  Definitions

   HDA (Hierarchical HIT Domain Authority):  The 14 bit field
      identifying the HIT Domain Authority under a RAA.

   HID (Hierarchy ID):  The 32 bit field providing the HIT Hierarchy ID.

   RAA (Registered Assigning Authority):  The 18 bit field identifying
      the Hierarchical HIT Assigning Authority.

3.  Host Identity Claims

   Under DRIP there are a total of 7 Identity Claims created during the
   provisioning of the UA to enable trustworthiness.  This document
   specifies the Host Identity Claims forms in detail, the individual
   Host Identity Claims created and their use in DRIP.

3.1.  Why the term: Host Identity Claims

   Host Identity Claims are a form of digital certificates, specially
   crafted for the UAS/USS ecosystem.  The term "certificates" has been
   avoided due to the significant technology and legal baggage around
   X.509 certificates.

   X.509 certificates and Public Key Infrastructure invokes more legal
   and public policy considerations than probably any other electronic
   communication sector.  It emerged as a governmental platform for
   trusted identity management and was pursued in intergovernmental
   bodies with links into treaty instruments.

   Thus there is a common expectation whenever the term "Certificates"
   are used, and the term "Host Identity Claims" to carefully separate
   these objects from X.509 objects and to emphasize their role as
   claims.

3.2.  Cxx Form

   Cxx is a self-signed Host Identity Claim on entity 'x' with the
   following format:

   This Host Identity Claim form is used to stake an unverified claim
   onto the specified HI/HHIT pairing, until an expiration time, to be
   used in DRIP for entity 'x'.  All Identity Claims of this form are
   116 bytes in length.

   The Expiration Timestamp MUST be current UNIX time, at the time of
   signing, plus an offset into the future.  This offset SHOULD be of
   significant length (possibly years).

3.2.1.  Cxx Claims

   DRIP uses this form to create three self-signed Host Identity Claims,
   which are then nested into other claims.  The three claims created
   are:

      Aircraft on Aircraft (Caa)

      Operator on Operator (Coo)

      Registry on Registry (Crr)

   These claims (and keypairs needed to create them) SHOULD be created
   on the entities that own them.  Crr on the Registry, Coo on the
   Operator device and Caa on the Aircraft itself (if able).

   These claims could also be stored in DNS under the CERT RR [RFC4398].
   The value of doing so is currently unknown.

3.3.  Cxy Form

   Cxy is a binding Host Identity Claim with the following format:

   In the Cxy form a binding is asserted between the entities of 'x' and
   'y'.  The self-signed Host Identity Claims of Cxx and Cyy are used in
   the new claim.  The new Identity Claims is signed by the first party
   (in the example above owner of Cxx) using their keypair.

   During Host Identity Claim creation Timestamp and Expiration
   Timestamp MUST be UNIX time (with Expiration Timestamp being created
   using an offset setting it into the future) and MUST be no later than
   the Expiration Timestamps found in Cxx and Cyy.

Internet-Draft               Identity Claims                  March 2020


3.3.1.  Cxy Claims

   In DRIP two Identity Claims are created in the Cxy way, and third one
   which is a special nesting of the created Host Identity Claims (but
   following the Cxy form).  These claims are as follows:

      Registry on Operator (Cro): Using Crr and Coo as Cxx and Cyy
      respectively, this claims asserts the Registry's Acceptance of the
      claims in Coo. This MUST be performed on the Registry.  It is 304
      bytes in length.

      Operator on Aircraft (Coa): Using Coo and Caa (Cxx and Cyy
      respectively) this claim asserts a binding between an Operator and
      Aircaft.  This MUST be performed on the Operator device.  It is
      304 bytes in length.

      Registry on Operator on Aircraft (Croa): A special claim created,
      asserting the transitivity between Registry, Operator and
      Aircraft.  It uses Cro as Cxx and Coa as Cyy.  This MUST be
      performed on the Registry.  It is 608 bytes in length.

   The exact methods of transfering data between the entities are out of
   scope of this document.  It MUST be secure, especially when the
   Registry sends back Croa.  It is RECOMMENED that HIP be used if
   possible, considering that HHITs are being used already.

   Croa is special in that it is similiar to an issued automobile
   registration.  The Operator, once it recieves Croa via a secure
   channel from the Registry, should store it somewhere safe to be
   recalled if required.  It SHOULD not be public availibe, as it can be
   classified as Personally Identifiable Information (PII).

   It is possible that Cro and/or Coa are stored in DNS and are public
   availible as a result.  If so, the CERT RR [RFC3498] should be used
   to store them.  It is unknown the value of storing them in DNS gives.

   This Identity Claim uses the HHIT of the Registry and Caa to form a
   short (200 byte) certificate to be used on the Aircraft in Broadcast
   Remote ID.

   During Host Identity Claim creation the Expiration Timestamp MUST be
   UNIX time (with an offset added to it, setting it into the future)
   and also MUST be no later than the Expiration Timestamp found in Caa.

   The Registry HHIT is substitued for Crr to keep the Host Identity
   Claim within the contraints of Broadcast RID payload size.  This
   optimization does allow for an attacker to attempt a hash collision
   on the HHIT.  This, the authors argue, would be incredible hard as
   the attacker would need to corrupt DNS to go undetected.  That is if
   a collision on the HHIT is even found in time as it is expected that

   standard operating procedure for UAS would be to use "one-time"
   identifiers.

   Cra could also be stored in DNS using the CERT RR [RFC3498].  If this
   is of any benefit has not been explored.

4.  Provisioning

   This section gives an overview of how an Operator then Aircraft are
   provisioned under DRIP.

   First keypairs are generates on the required devices.  Due to
   limitations in hardware and connectivity it is acceptable to generate
   the Aircraft keypairs and Host Identity Claims on the Operator device
   and later embed the data into the Aircraft at the end of
   provisioning.  The methods to securely perform the action of handling
   the data and embedding it into the Aircraft hardware are out of scope
   for this document.  This section of the document assumes that the
   Operator is acting on behalf of the Aircraft.

4.1.  HHIT Delegation

   Under the FAA NPRM, it is expect that IDs for UAS are assigned by the
   UTM and are generally one-time use.  The methods for this however is
   unspecified leaving two options.

      The entity generates its own HHIT, discovering and using the RRA
      and HDA for the target Registry.  The method for discovering a
      Registry's RRA and HDA is out of scope here.  This allows for the
      device to generate an HHIT to send to the Registry to be accepted
      (thus generating the required Host Identity Claim) or denied.

      The entity sends to the Registry its HI for it to be hashed and
      result in the HHIT.  The Registry would then either accept
      (returning the HHIT to the device) or deny this pairing.

   In either case the Registry must make a decision on if the HI/HHIT
   pairing is valid.  This in its simplest form is checking the current
   Registry for a collision on the HHIT.

   Upon accepting a HI/HHIT pair the Registry MUST populate the requried
   the DNS serving the HDA with the HIP RR and other relevant RR types
   (such as TXT and CERT).  The Registry MUST also generate the
   appropriate Host Identity Claim for the given operation.

   If the Registry denied the HI/HHIT pair, because their was a HHIT
   collision or any other reason, the Registry MUST signal back to the
   device being provisioned that a new HI needs to be generated.

   The subsequent sections follow that the device is generating its own
   HHIT.

4.2.  Operator

               +----------+            +---------+
               | Registry | ---------> | HDA DNS |
               +----------+   HIP RR   +---------+
                  ^    |
                  |    |
                  |    |
            Coo   |    |   Cro
                  |    |
                  |    v
               +----------+
               | Operator |
               +----------+

   The Operator generates his HHIT then Coo and sends Coo (along with
   other relevant information if required) to the desired Registry.

   The Registry performs Operator registration, by confirming that no
   HHIT collisions occur.  Coo undergoes a signature verification.  If
   everything passes the Registry adds the HIP RR and optionally CERT
   RRs and TXT RRs into the HDA DNS, generates Cro and transmits it back
   to the Operator.

   Upon recieving Cro the Operator is now registered in the Registry and
   can proceed to provision any Aircraft.  Further verification of Cro
   can be done, if desired.

                              Caa, Cra

   The Operator generates the HHIT for the Aircraft along with Caa and
   Coa, sending them to the Registry.

   The Registry confirms that the Operator is valid user and then begins
   Aircraft registration.  The HHIT is checked to see if there is a
   collision in the current Registry.  Caa and Coa undergo a signature
   check.  Once complete and all passes, then the Registry adds the HIP
   RR (and other RRs) to the HDA DNS.  The Registry then generates two
   Host Identity Claims: Croa and Cra. Both are sent back to the
   Operator to signal successful completion of Aircraft registration.

   Upon recieving Croa the Operator stores it for safe keeping.  After
   any additional verification and signature checking Cra, the Aircraft
   HHIT and the Aircraft keypair and embedded onto the Aircaft.

4.4.  Registry

   It should be noted that the Registry can undergo a similar process as
   Operator/Aircraft to provision them to an RRA (as a Registry is most
   likely the HDA).  This is currently not specified here for berevity
   of the document.

5.  IANA Considerations

   TBD

6.  Security Considerations

   A major consideration is the optimization done in Cra to get its
   length down to 200 bytes.  The truncation of Crr down to just its
   HHIT is one that could be used against the system to act as a false
   Registry.  For this to occur an attacker would need to find a hash
   collision on that Registry HHIT and then manage to spoof all of DNS
   being used in the system.

   The authors believe that the probabilty of such an attack is low when
   Registry operators are using best practices in security.  If such an
   attack is able to occur (especially in the time frame of "one-time
   use IDs") then there are more serious issues present in the system.
